Remember the teacher or mentor that made a difference in your life?

You can be that important person in someone else's life.

Help adults achieve their dreams with determination. Almost all of our local adult literacy programs rely on volunteer instructors and tutors to help reach the adults who take that first step to find help. Many classes have waiting lists, which means an eager student must delay preparing for the High School Equivalency (GED) test, improving their English skills, or reading their first book for another day. By becoming a volunteer, you ensure that an adult can start today.

If you have questions regarding the application process, contact our office.

Find the Right Niche

If being a literacy tutor does not sound right for you at this time, there are other ways you can get involved. You'll meet other committed people, have fun, and make a lasting, immediate difference in people's lives.

We'll find an opportunity that fits your interests and time constraints. Options include, but are not limited to, assistance with childcare, preparing and serving snacks or meals for students, welcoming and registering students before class, marketing and student outreach, helping with student records and filing, translating classroom materials, and help with special events.
